Ex 62 P. 26 Part II

Hi,
I have a question concerning the Part II of the Ex. 62.
The question that i´m concerned with is the number 5 that I copy here:

(His) daughter is getting (parat) a good dinner for the farmer.

The correct answer, according to the key, is (i'm omiting all the long syllabes indicators.) :

Filia agricolae bonam cenam parat.

However, this translation doesn't make a clair difference about the person for whom the dinner is. ...

Usage of the "-que" Enclitic?

Is the "-que" enclitic commonly used for anything except joining noun lists? The reason I ask is that in D'Ooge (and Wheelock, IIRC) I don't recall seeing any other use for it. E.g., Curo feminae liberique.

But in Lingua Latina, Hans Orberg uses "-que" to join sentence clauses. I was wondering if anyone here could provide some guidance on how to best use this little caboose.

The D’Ooge group is accepting new students.

Hi all,

The first class, and only so far, of the D’Ooge group is, at this point, only alive because of the stubbornness of two persons. Since we are stubborn and would like to keep the group going, and after consulting with the TextKit Group Coordinator, we are glad to inform that the D’Ooge group is accepting new members.


The study group has been working in the following way:

I am a newbie to learn Latin,and I got a question today.

For example:

Puella Dianae coronam dat quia Dianam amat.

Translations:

1.The girl gives Diana a wreath,because the girl loves Diana.

2.The girl gives Diana a wreath,because Diana loves the wreath.

so,my question is above,which tranlation is correct?

PS:
as my thought,the first one is right,because there is only one subject case-- "puella".
and if translate to "because Diana loves the wreath" then I think the sentence will be "quia Diana coronam amat."

am I right?

Dooge Key quick question ex78,

excersie 78, the answer in the key is given as this
Quid oppidani parant? Oppidani bellum parant


my question is how come bellum is in the genitive case, and not the dative. Arnt the people preparing FOR war? which would make it 'bello'?

might be a stupid question but any help would be great thanks

declension praesidium / filius

On page 38 D'Ooge says that the plural of praesidium and filius is regular. Does this mean that the plural of praesidium is formed in the same way the plural of bellum is formed and then filius is formed in the same way the plural of servus is formed?

Caesarian

Hello everybody,

I just joined this site yesterday and I was reading through the D'Ooge Latin for beginners book and I was just wondering what is meant by Caesarian words. In the preface page 'vi' they mention 95% of the words chosen are Caesarian. Can anyone explain. Thanks for the help :P
